David West

Born 1939, London.

David West attended Sutton and Cheam School of Art before going on to Camberwell School of Art to study painting and printmaking.  He himself later taught at Camberwell until he moved to Lyme Regis to do his own work full time.  In 1985 he was awarded a South West Arts Craft Fellowship, which allowed him to develop the series Aspects of the Coast, without the constraints of individual commissions.  West exhibited with Sam Smith at Parnham House, Dorset, John Makepeace's School of Furniture, in 1978, and exhibited at Fischer Fine Art in 1984.  In 1987 Castles in the Air, an Exhibition of Paintings and Carvings by David West was organised by the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter, which subsequently toured nationally, and was shown at the Mead Gallery in November and December 1987.

David West lives and works in Dorset.
